5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Be prepared to upgrade your wardrobe. Preppy lifestyle at its finest

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: SMU students are like none other. Girls are incredibly attractive - blonde, skinny, and often well dressed. Some girls truly believe in the MRS degree thing, but a lot of girls really do work hard and are genuinely smart. Starbucks, yoga pants, sundresses, Ray Bans, expensive purses...everything you'd expect, it's all there. The majority of girls will join a sorority. If you aren't a good looking, charming, or rich guy, don't expect to have much luck with the top tier sorority girls. A lot of girls think the guys at SMU aren't quite as attractive as the girls are, which is probably true. Guys are generally in pretty good shape. Probably one in five guys spends at least 10 hours a week in the gym. Most guys are also athletic, ex-high school athletes. There's a great car culture among SMU guys. There's more exotic cars here than any other school. Guys usually drive their parent's old luxury car. There are generally two types of guys at SMU - California and Southern. The california guys wear the flat brimmed hats and skateboard T-shirts, and say things like hella and chill. If you're from the South, the California kids will get on your nerves. They're generally a little ruder. The Southern guys dress a little nicer, and cowboy boots aren't uncommon on a regular day. They can be snobby too, but both types of guys love going out and having fun. SMU is definitely a party school. If you aren't in Greek life, you will not have fun and you will feel very excluded. Going out three times a week is common. The first two years students typically stay single and enjoy random hookups on the weekends, and the last two years a lot of students are in longer term relationships. That being said, you can find a relationship as a freshman if you want it, and likewise, you can continue random hook ups your senior year.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

SMU has some of the most stunning and beautiful girls from all over the nation. Most of the guys walk around campus with their jaws dragging on the ground, and some of them are even lucky enough to date a couple of SMU's fine and polished ladies. Many of the girls are fashion oriented and fixated on designer labels, such as Gucci, Prada, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren, and Dolce and Gabbana. On that note, sadly, the men at SMU are not up to par with the women. It is not out of the ordinary for a girl to date the same attractive guy that her friend has also gone out with. The dating situation at SMU resembles a soap opera. Several students have been around the block, and they have gotten to know their neighbors fairly well (or at least through the magic of gossip). Male students are lucky enough to have eye candy in every single class and in every major.

The campus is changing, though, in respect to an elitist dynamic. There will always be trendy and preppy dressers, but over the course of the last two years, the dress code has been scaled down (thanks to the incoming freshmen). Jeans and T-shirts have become more than acceptable clothing for class, as opposed to polo shirts, khakis, and piles of makeup. There are more and more students sporting the true unkempt "I just woke up" look. Students at SMU, particularly females, have glittering, friendly, attractive, and radiant smiles, which can possibly be attributed to the hospitality of Texas.

Birth Control Available?
Ladies must first have an exam with either the Health Center's gynecologist or with their own doctor. The prescription can be filled by the Health Center's pharmacy. If a student chooses to use SMU's health insurance policy, she will only have to pay 20 percent of any prescription. The average cost of birth control ranges from $13–$20 per month. The ring, the patch, and oral contraception are offered. Condoms can also be picked up at the Health Center for free.

Social Scene
Being socially inept is impossible at SMU because the student body is generally extraverted and amicable. Here in the heart of Texas, rosy cheeks and glistening smiles welcome students on every end of the campus. Students also have an easier time adjusting once they find their niche. The campus is comprised mainly of social butterflies and hospitable people that come from all majors, organizations, and schools. If you were shy upon arrival, you will leave with a pocketful of social skills.
Hookups or Relationships?
During freshman year, dating seems to be the last thing on students' minds. The majority of hookups happen during this time period. Around sophomore year, spring fever sets in, and there are couples popping up all over campus. Students tend to become more committed as they become upperclassmen. But in the beginning, everyone explores and walks on the open playing field. There are, on the other hand, students that have significant others back home or choose not to partake in the exploration.
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Meeting guys and girls on campus is quite simple. As a freshman, the easiest way to meet guys and girls is in the residence halls. Another place to meet people is in the classroom. The class size here forces you to get to know your neighbor. The student center is also an easy target for bumping into new people. Getting involved in an organization facilitates the web of communication here on campus. However, the best place to find hot girls and guys is at parties; whether they are Greek, athletic, or club related. The bar scene is very hip here in Dallas, and it offers a great selection of hotties.
Dress Code
SMU has a rainbow of designer clothing. Many students sport Ralph Lauren or Lacoste polos. Expensive jeans and Greek T-shirts mix well together. Gucci, Prada, or Chanel sunglasses are paired perfectly with leggings and sundresses, polos, and a North Face backpack. The number of girls that roll out of bed and manage to dress themselves decently balances out the number of girls that wake up an hour before class to compose themselves. The dress code here is preppy but laid-back on most days.
